To mark International Women’s Day, Norwegian Cruise Line is celebrating the accomplishments of its female leaders, employees, clients and trade partners and the invaluable contribution they make to the company’s success.

International Women’s Day festivities are being held at the line’s regional headquarters in Sydney today.

To mark the occasion the team is proudly ablaze with purple – and sharing purple cupcakes – to celebrate all the amazing women in their organisation and industry, and to show their support for International Women’s Day’s 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign.

Senior Vice President and Managing Director Asia Pacific at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Steve Odell since launching their local office in 2015, combining professional excellence and gender equality across NCLH’s regional leadership team has been a priority.

“Our eight-strong executive leadership group is made up of four women and four men, achieving our desired gender balance of 50/50.”

He said moving forward towards 2020 and beyond, the line would continue to develop initiatives, programs and opportunities targeted at attracting, developing and retaining outstanding female talent remains a top priority.

He noted that 75% of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ employees across the local business are female.

“While our female employees would be the first to request we celebrate their successes based on results versus gender, which we do, International Women’s Day provides a wonderful opportunity for us to recognise all the talented women across our business who make an invaluable contribution to our success,” Steve Odell said.
